RKYHS Students ‘Voluntutor’ in New Program

A new initiative at RKYHS called Voluntutor kicked off this year. A group of RKYHS students have been visiting the Martin Luther King Youth Center in Bridgewater to work with the students in their after-school program. The RKYHS volunteers do homework, read and play games with the children at the center. The center for grade school and middle school students originally began as a youth center and a safe haven for diverse children in the neighborhood to keep them off the streets. Over time, the center expanded to include educational and summer camp programs on a sliding income scale for children from low-income families, who would not be able to afford such services. Voluntutor is a student-initiated club and the students in charge were empowered to not just conceive of the idea but get it up and running and handle the logistics with guidance from RKYHS faculty. The students involved in Voluntutor are very excited about this new initiative and look forward to future visits throughout the year.
